I've just installed the latest Sabayon 64b Gnome version to set up my HTPC.
(I usually use Gentoo...but I did want to spent to many times on this computer...and I'm not a big fan of Ubuntu...Hopefully Sabayon will suit me and that I will not mess between emerge and equo)
I got several questions as I don't really know how to use Sabayon.
The main one concern the mirrors list.
I firstly deleted every mirrors in the package manager in order to set the closest mirrors. However i thought a software like mirrorselect but for equo was available....I didn't find anything close to that....is it the case ?
So I have manually added some "close" mirrors from the download page of sabayon. However despite my relatively good connection (FTTC 20M/5M) I'm living in Taiwan and there isn't any mirrors there...and the Japanese mirror seems dead, as the Thai one.
So I'm currently running under a Malaysian mirror but not very fast....(300kb/s max with some latency)
I've added some others mirrors (USA and AU), run the command
- Code: Select all
equo repo mirrorsort sabayonlinux.org
And it has ranked the mirrors by "speed"
However it has still selected a malaysian one....but with an actual lower DL rate than the one I was using (So I had to skip it)
I guess it's because it is based on ping test right ?
Does Sabayon as any more powerfull tool to select mirrors ? and Does sabayon have more mirrors than shown on the download page ?
Quite bad, I will need to add all of them manually and to run the mirrorsort command again and do manually my selection...
Also, still base on mirror, I see there isn't any mirror in France...I have a dedicated server there with a 1Gbps connection. What are the requirement to run a mirrors ? (if it is accepted by Sabayon's team)
